Hello, I'm Ray and would be happy to help you..Are you talking about the rails that the basket rollers roll in?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
For question a there are no rails involved. The upper tray is solid plastic. The rollers are mounted on "squeezable" plastic posts, the same material as the tray. I want to know what plastic this is made of and/or what adhesive is best used to reattach the broken posts.For question part b, I'm not talking about the rails, I'm talking about the rollers that the upper and middle basket rails are mounted on. The rails run on rollers that are mounted permanently on metal posts attached to metal plates spot-welded to the sides of the cabinet. Two of those plates are bent enough so the rollers are no longer square and make it hard for the rails to slide.
As I said, my question on (b) is whether there are any cautions/hints on pushing those sidemounted rollers back into place on their spot-welded mounts.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I solved part (b) on my own. I carefully used a rubber mallet to nudge the rollers back into place.
We're now down to part (a). Clearly you guys don't have an answer. I'll find it on my own.Thanks anyway.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I answered part (a) on my own now.
1) Loctite/superglue has NO product suitable for use in a dishwasher, even though some of theirs and other products are "dishwasher safe." They have explicitly advised that subjecting to the heat and water of dishwasher cycles is beyond their ability.
2) On the other hand, JB Weld Epoxies are specifically rated for such extremes. I'm done.No answer needed anymore.
